Under a very round harvest moon, Autumn falls on the Northern Hemisphere, today, September 22, 2018 at 9:54 E.S.T. The arrival of the Autumn Equinox brings no guarantee of comfort or of peace with the natural ushering in of cooler temperatures. It, however, threatens to underscore the conflicted reality of no solace to the many people in dire need of comfort.
Sadly also, this Autumn 2018, could see new conflicts take shape against named proxies as competing foes seek to gain national recognition via desperate acts to cling to diminishing power over their realms. Existing conflicts could also alter their forms this Fall after giving appearances of reaching their ends, yet to become more metamorphosed into more complex and violent ends to hundreds of thousands of innocents.
An escalating trade war started by United States (US) President Donald Trump has the potential to upend the entire global economy this Autumn. However, as in all Autumns before, there is hope toward regaining the luster of human development. Congressional elections in the US slated for November 6, could place checks upon the controversial Trump and seek to rationalize the traditional integrity of the American democracy.
But until then, it remains very unlikely that there will be any widespread solace this Autumn 2018.
